A canoe was parked on a gravel bar on the riverbank. Two dogs just happened to jump into the canoe right when a gust of wind blew the canoe off the bar and into the river current.
Very quickly, the two dogs realized they were trapped. You can hear them crying and yelping, and you can tell they were really scared.
Lucky for these two dogs, there was someone on shore with Robbie, their Labrador retriever dog. The Labrador sprung into action.
Dogs are so remarkable. They will do whatever they can to help out others – people and other animals – when they are in trouble. They never cease to amaze me how they just step up and take over when necessary.
Amazingly, the Labrador jumped into the water. He didn’t hesitate for even a second, and swam out to retrieve the dogs in the canoe.
As the canoe was drifting down the river, you can hear the cries of the dogs on board getting louder and more frantic.
You can hear the human on shore yelling instructions to the Labrador, and cheering him on. The water is moving pretty swiftly, but it doesn’t faze the dog at all. He keeps swimming, and makes it out to the canoe.
What happens next is an absolute miracle…
